Assignment One:  Introduction to the Screenplay

View a powerpoint presentation on the screenplay here and read the handout called "Writing Your Screenplay."


Assignment Two:  Viewing a Screenplay

a) Consider a film you have recently watched.  Does the three act structure fit for that film?  Explain how in the comments section below.


b)  Take a look at the excerpt from a screenplay found here.  What conventions of screenwriting, according to the powerpoint presentation, can be found in this screenplay?  Post your answer the comments section below.


Assignment Three:  Writing a Screenplay

Using the story found here (it is a story that you might have read in grade 10), develop an original screenplay in classic style that could be used to make two minutes of film (one page of screenplay = one minute of film).  Important note:  Since it is only for two minutes of film, the screenplay will not include the whole story.


The screenplay segment will be handed in.
